I downloaded this some years ago here, and it was in widescreen. I am so glad I got it when I did. I love this movie. Only four stars for full screen.

I remember this movie at the theater, I was ten. Had a great time. Still enjoy this comedy! I always laugh when the Wife, sticks the guy with her hat pin! OUCH! That had to hurt!

Well written and acted. BTW, the mudhole fight scene is in the middle of the movie, not near the end.

this is one of the worst films on IA, JW's liver could have used a break and another could easily have played the drunken fool, anyone could have played it!

If you like stupid drunks, and stereotypes, then this may be for you. If don't, then skip it. There are few good westerns on IA and this is not one of them.

Wayne and O'Hara shine as they did in "The Quiet Man". The ending is almost an homage to that same film. Along with the ref. to "Paddyfingers". Chill Wills and Edgar Buchanan are their 'Classic Selves".

Subject: Eh....
Perhaps it was that I'd seen O'Hara and Wayne not long ago in "The Quiet Man," when they were both younger and the chemistry on screen was very powerful. This wasn't bad, the little that I saw of it (the downloaded version wasn't complete, just the first part of it), but it wasn't anywhere near as good as I'd hoped it would be. Both Wayne and O'Hara seemed to be Wayne and O'Hara first, and Mr. and Mrs. McClintock second, and the pace was so slow. Also, Wayne needed a coat to hide his gut, and that was depressing, after seeing him in "The Quiet Man" and "Red River." It's not a bad movie -- it couldn't be with that cast and direction -- but I don't feel the need to watch the full version, either.

A very fun John Wayne movie. Since I have always been a fan of him I enjoyed Mclintock very much.

In 1963, I saw this with my family for the first time on the big screen and what a house full of laughter this was!

Yes, "the Duke" can be serious as an actor, but this was the best comedy that he ever played in.

"sliding into that cement pond"

It was an excellent movie to watch

One of John Wayne's film which one has to like. The role he plays and the problems he deals with and how they are solved after all is really nice to see. Though sometimes the jokes are a little bit overstreched and starts to bore a bit.

The cast chosen for this film speaks volumes.
I loved the late Yvone Decarlo in this film (later to play Lilly Munster)
This is one of Wayne's most entertaining films.

Subject: Not a master of comedy
McClintock is basically a television western with the same flat characters and same flat sets padded out to feature length. Interesting for John Wayne fans maybe, or for people who want to see why westerns became unpopular but not a significant film otherwise.

Subject: Great Movie and Divx Format
Ok..if you like westerns, this is good. Very funny to see how the relationship between John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara goes full-circle. Also, a great supporting cast. I've seen this several times, and it makes me smile every time.
The Divx format is a real plus for me. Works well on both my PC and Mac. Would like to see all movies
offered this way.
